    Obama serves the global elite, not the American people.

    Obama is no idiot. He understands the symbolism better than anybody else. After the backlash over his bow to the Saudis do you really think there is even a slightest chance he didn't know what this means ? NO

    This is deliberate. Obama is proving himself to his masters just as Bush did when he presided over 9/11 inside-job and just as Blair did when he presided over 7/7 bombings inside-job.

    Either you ( the US President ) do what your masters tell you or the same thing will happen to you as did to JFK.

    So why don't you round them up and send them to the reeducation camps. You could execute those that persisted being non-compliant.

    I wonder what the purpose of a 70 car motorcade was. Did this include press as well?

    Okay. So then, did the Emporor bow to the President?

    I didn't think so. So now, is anyone ready to criticize the Emp for that?!!

    Ask the Japanese, it was their motorcade, not ours.
    As for bowing, it costs nothing to show respect, yet the gesture pleased the entire Japanese nation. Obama is confident enough to show respect without feeling inferior, and our nation certainly is strong enough to respect others.

    I can understand how a Republican would have issues with inferiority, but the rest of us have no problem seeing Obama make a gracious bow to Japan's emperor.

    Dude, if you can't handle foreign customs, just stay home with your gun and Bible.

    He's the president of the United States, and as such should not assume any posture of submission to any petty emperor or king.

    It's not like he's puking in the Prime Minister's lap.

    The President is a symbol, and its necessary that the current holder of that symbol not tarnish it or bend it out of shape.

    The flag bearer of every nation was supposed to dip their country's flag while passing by the Führer and the Olympic officials. The American flag bearer upset many Germans in the audience by ignoring this, adhering to the U.S. custom of only dipping to the President of the United States and no one else.
    The president of the US bows to no one.

    The Messiah is a disgrace.

    Bowing in our culture is a gesture of subservience....as it is in EVERY culture that bows.

    That's why Americans don't bow.

    Then again, no one every seriously claimed the Messiah was a real American.

    Besides, look at that picture.

    Mr. Miyagi would have slapped that boy in the head, saying, "never look down. Look in the eyes!"
